    If he so good why has he been matched so slow?not saying he should have been matched like lomachenko lol but some of the people he has been in with is just ridiculous given the tales coming out about his ability.

    Everyone fears a puncher and that is exactly why eubank sr has chosen bjs however nobody likes southpaws and skillsters and this depending on the result is either the unleashing of a tiger and a coming out party or a defeat that will expose all his flaws.I genuinely believe the loser will never recover from this fight mentally and there career could be over forever.

    Sparring all well and good but what eubank jr has experienced in previous shows will be nothing like what he faces tomorrow.Whoever loses has made a huge error of judgement and I hope and think that loser will be eubank jr.

    I don't think Eubank has a hope in hell of out boxing BJS.
    Eubank will have a hard time even catching BJS.

    On the flip side Bradley Pryce who has fought them both said he thought Eubank would win. Fact is we just don't know. All we have to go on with Eubank is hearsay. That's what makes this so exciting. What if he is that good?

    I don't think Eubank will do his usual rubbish in the middle of the round where he starts posing. At least I hope he doesn't as he has a lot of potential and I really believe he can beat saunders, if he starts ****ing about in the middle of the round I hope he loses but I really dislike saunders as I think he has been a bit of an **** in the whole build up

    For posting this creepy horrible ass licking post, I hope Eubank puts BJS to fooking sleep.

    I'll be coming back to laugh at you soon after.

    Horrible creepy tit.

    what we have witnessed so far in his career has told us nothing , tonight tells us everything . billy joe saunders is the ultimate acid test !!

    this british forum has been alight over the last couple of weeks over this fight , even more so than the fury/chisora match-up , this fight has really caught the imagination of the boxing fans in the UK and it really has the nation split on who they think will win .

    we have half the forum going with the seasoned professional holding all the belts billy joe saunders and the other half siding with the virtually untested chris eubank jnr .

    on paper this fight looks ridiculously one-sided , saunders is just too classy and has all the experience to back it up , putting there CVs together only one person gets the job and its saunders .

    but what are we missing here ?

    would the eubanks take this fight if he was not ready ?

    has all the training camps with world class fighters over the last 18 months to 2 years showing us a new route to climb the experience ladder in boxing rather than taking on better opposition in the ring leading up to this ?

    is he as good as some very influential people in boxing say he is ?

    is the power a myth or is he the mini mike tyson some are saying ?

    all these questions are going to be answered tonight against an opponent of the highest order domestically .

    have the bookmakers gone crazy and saunders should be at 1/20 odds ?

    i dont think i have looked forward to a fight like this in some time , will it be a 12 round masterclass from saunders or will eubank jnr turn out to be the monster some are saying ?

    12 hours boys , whos excited ? :D

    Stop being so abusive to people who bring up valid points favouring Saunders. You're strange but worst of all very boring.

    BJS isn't a seasoned pro. He has had two more pro fights than Eubank (albeit at a higher level). Not exactly Marvin Hagler, or a Bernard Hopkins. BJS can still get a lot better himself.

    Eubank can get beaten, and still not be "hype job". He can lose and go on to have a wonderful career.

    This is just a genuine 50/50 fight, which is what fans clamour for. Let's not make it a "do or die" contest. Both these guys can come again and fight for honours at a later date. I see it a bit like Degale and Groves when they fought, and some people at the time said it was too early and that they should let it build some more. It didn't really hurt either of them that much.

    okay so he has done it once against a guy that been KO'd five times in a 22 fight career according to box rec. Eubank ain't a murderous pucher and bringing up a ko of some latvian ain't going to change the fact billy joe is going to school him.

    Said Eubank a month or so ago. Can't be ****d to go through it all again.

    In summary, Saunders will start off fast but Eubank will begin to walk him down and stop him late-ish.

    War Saunders?
    As a person he's a disgraceful ****.
    So tell me what do you like about watching him box in the ring?
    He's a pretty 'stock standard' fighter imo, doesn't do anything exceptional in terms of entertainment value.
    So why would you want him to win?
